SNMP trap receiver not working



I send a trap that is confirmed received in the OS of the prtg server, using wireshark. The windows OS has its firewall disabled.

SNMP trap config in prtg: http://s30.postimg.org/5egabgb0h/prtg_trap_dell_md3200i.png

SNMP trap received, in wireshark: http://s10.postimg.org/5k16stua1/prtg_wireshark_trap_received.png

Im trying with this specific long OID, but rather "" (which is general DELL), but I guess the OID will also match for example "". Is that correct?

oid prtg snmp

Please refer to How can I use PRTG’s trap receiver and what are its limitations?

As such, please try with the OID
